Blue Square Premier club Gateshead will play their final game of this season, against Ebbsfleet United, at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium on Saturday 20th April.

The Heed are unable to play at their International Stadium home because of problems with the playing surface after torrential weather, and the Riverside is the latest venue to be added to their schedule of 'home' matches.

Boro's stadium will be the fifth venue used by the Tynesiders, with other matches already pencilled in at Hartlepool United, York City, Carlisle United and Blyth Spartans. 

"I am delighted that Middlesbrough FC have been able to help us out," Gateshead chairman Graham Wood said.

"I would like to express my gratitude to Steve Gibson and everyone at Boro."
